Hi Jason..

I had exact same problem.. bottom line I had to replace selector forks (all three) and second gear cog.. If u do replace a gear cog then please take a tip from me (lesson hard learn't). Have all your gears undercut at the same time or it will slip out of another gear.. I got my bike back after 2 nd gear done and on the same day 3 rd gear started to slip. Had to send bike back and have all the cogs undercut... Now its fine.

And yes u do need to remove motor to open gearbox and u will need to replace gaskets..

SOURCE: my 250 honda rebel runs fine in neutral but shuts

Check the side stand kill switch. Broken, loose or out of adjustment it will kill the bike when put in gear. The idea is to prevent starting out with the side stand down. Check the wires and connections also.

SOURCE: When I shift from second gear to first, it just slips to neutral

You have a bent shift fork not engaging the slider gear properly into 1st gear. The engine will need to come out of the bike. Remove the top end, the flywheel and electrics, the clutch, shift mechanism and kick starter and a few other parts. THEN you are ready to split the gearbox to get to the crankshaft, gears and shift forks.

You will need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter, torque wrench and factory service manual, plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to the special tools is taking it to the dealer and say "Fix it". I normally tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into such an involved project and they have a knowing eye working on the engine.

SOURCE: I cant seem to get my r1 to change pass third

The bike has a bent shift fork in the transmission. You describe the classic symptoms. The engine will have to come out of the frame. Then it gets flipped upside down, right and left side covers, shift shaft, and other components are removed, then the bottom half of the gearbox is removed. This allows access to the shift drum and shift forks. There are some special tools needed and I don't recommend a novice mechanic tackles the job. Below is a diagram of how the shift drum moves the shift forks left and right to make a slider gear engage different gears. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_116.gif

Reverse on my gmc envoy not working


This can be due to few reasons but the most important can be as follows:

1. If can be a mis-alignment of the gear lever to the gear box as normally the reverse gear is always engage with more movement . so a change of postion or setting can alter the notch settings and refuse to engage properly.
2. Secondly the fault within the gear box, if there is a linkage or counter wheel/gear setting within it will not mesh or engage as the setting would be altered.
3. finally gaps or bush failures in the gear lever, linkages or the gear box will make the movement restricted and hence not engage.
You need to check on all the above. Thank You.

I have a 1983 honda magna v45. I got the bike from someone that hasn't messed with it in about 6 years. After about the last 2 months of cleaning the carbs i got it running. Now when i put it in gear its...


Hello,

Have you checked to see if the clutch lever is working properly? If the clutch stays engaged, the bike won't move. You can lubricate the clutch cable by removing it and taping a cardboard cone to the housing and pour a lightweight (30w) motor oil into the cone. Next, move the cable back and forth for a minute or so so that the oil will flow down inside the cable.

If the clutch cable is working correctly then then clutch plates are not disengaging when put into gear. Try different gears to see if it does the same thing. Also, have you changed the oil in the bike? Your bike uses a wet clutch system which means that the oil you put in the crankcase is also used for your clutch plates. Using a synthetic oil will cause problems with your bike (according to Honda).

Hopefully this will give you a few more ideas to try. If you need more information, please post a reply/comment and I will get back with you.

If you find this information helpful, please vote on this post. Thank you.

Regards,

Oz

It sounds like the "middle drive" is damaged. You should seek professional help with this problem as a number of special tools are need for disassembly and reassembly.

Hi i have an 02 Honda cb250 that i cant seem to get the gear selector to operate. All was well until i bent the lever a bit to suit my foot as it had been bent purposely to suit the smaller previous owners...


The bike has a bent shift for or two. The engine will need to come out of the bike and get a complete teardown. A shift fork moves a "slider gear" left and right on a shaft. Both sides of the slider gear have "dogs" that engage into the side of an adjacent gear. This is how the different gears are engaged. A bent fork will not slide properly or engage properly. It is a costly repair. Note that if the inspection reveals a broken gear tooth, the smooth shaft that the shift fork slides on could be bent, and/or the gear shafts could be bent as well.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

Unable to change down gear. gear lever stays down


Well, first of all ofcourse find out how many gears you have, if you take it to a shop and they tell you you have "One down, four up"
It means starting from Neutral, you click down once for first gear, and from there you can click up to fifth.
Try finding an open area, gear up to 3rd or 4th then gear down a couple times.
Remember, you must be in gear 2 or higher to gear down.
